Knowledge and Character for Leadership and Service

Providence creates Difference-Makers by teaching students to grow in knowledge and character for leadership and service.
Local Features

As you arrive you notice our iconic bell tower, rising prominently from the prairie. Relax and study in our new residence hall with spacious views overlooking fields of canola and corn and the nearby river. Our campus is rural and peaceful, but only 30 minutes from Winnipeg.

Community Culture

Learning happens best in community. Whether you’re attending a chapel service, joining in a residence hall activity, performing in an ensemble, participating in student leadership or serving others through Field Education, you will grow and learn in a supportive and diverse community — just like you do in the classroom.

Career Expectations

Our graduates are making a difference globally: at tech start-ups in Germany, TESOL placements in Southeast Asia, counselling centres in Rwanda, and addictions services here in Manitoba. Your Providence education will prepare you for the career you’ve dreamed about, no matter where in the world it takes you.

Program Highlights

Boasting 300+ sunny days a year, Providence, one of few Canadian universities to offer a BA in Aviation, is an ideal place to learn to fly! Our cross-country trip over the Grand Canyon and in-class simulator are only some of the reasons why Aviation is one of our most popular programs.

Campus Living and Learning

Learning and growing happens both inside and outside of the classroom. Ours is a diverse campus environment that emphasizes student learning and faith development through relationally focused communities. Our new residence hall is the centerpiece of this philosophy and boasts a community kitchen, lounges, a classroom, and employee apartments.

Featured Programs:
  • Buller School of Business
  • Counselling
  • Aviation
Counselling Program

This is graduate-level program with distance education options available. It equips students to integrate Christian worldview into mainstream practices, enabling graduates to effectively counsel individuals, families, couples and groups.

“Providence has encouraged and required integration of my faith into my practice and my daily life.”  — Margaret, MA Counselling 2018
